You should be able to take it to a seemstress and she should be able to give a few suggestions on how to change the bustle.

It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like an over bustle (I think that would be American).  I’m doing a French with mine (under), but you could always try having the train pulled up a different number of times.  I do agree with you though that you should do something different.  Why don’t you take it to a seamstress and have them show you different options?

Yeah, I think that bustle is too straight out, definitely try something different.

It does look odd.  I would almost just leave it un-bustled, the train doesnt seem that long anyhow.  Definatly talk to a seamstress they are very helpfull and im sure he/she will make that dress’s bustle look just right on you.  🙂  congrats and good luck

I really hope this link works, but I really suggest a french bustle, it will be lower than the picture and your seamstress should know how to create one. Usually they use either hook & eye or shoe-strings. If the train is too long for one layer of the bustle you can do two. I think french bustle’s are beautiful 🙂
